on the pump. we also realize between the state and federal government a lot of us are paying 40-plus cents a gallon to build the road that we're wearing out with the gas we put in. that's a user's fee. when i came here and break this down and asked the question, of tax/user rth of gas fee, 18.3 cents a gallon, $1 of that, how much of that actually goes into roads and bridges? and i'll tell you it adds up like this -- then we reduce it a little bit on this number. three cents out of that dollar went for trails for bike trails, snowmobile trails and that sort of thing. 3%. there was a one time $16 million in one of our appropriation bills to do -- to clean graffiti off of the walls, retaining walls in new jersey. and i thought, can't they get their prisoners out there with a wire brush to do that? and 28% going for environmental arciological -- interest, looking for arrowheads and endangered species. can't somebody pay for that rather than the people driving on the roads? when you add davis-bacon to that, another 20%, 22%, so you have 3% for trails, you have 28% for our achepologicl and env

at this in a small section of society. what is the south korean government going to do about it? >> reporter: yeah, i think you're right. south korea is one of the most connected countries in the world. north korea one of the least connected at presence very minimal on the internet, but the upper echelons even have access to the internet. but they have illustrated they have put a lot of effort, training, resources into getting the best and brightest in north korea trained up on cyber warfare tactics. they're very prevalent on the inside in attacking particularly south korean institutions, they've done it on a number of occasions. south korea has been trying to address that. they've got their own training college to sort of sort of train cyber warriors. they also have a special committee they formed just today to tackle this crisis whether they're going to identify the threat they say and implement the kind of countermeasures they say they need to prevent this from ever happening again. >> matthew chance, thank you so much from seoul, south korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria.

arm the syrian government, although it rawn insists it is humanitarian aid. the u.s. has asked iraq to force the planes to land in iraq for inspections. but only a few have been checked. they have long been a point of conflict between the and u.s. iraq. >> the intent here, fwy going public, is to increase the pressure on al-malma laki. but it shows how minimal our ability to affect the conflict in syria has become. >> kerry said that iraq can be be part of the political discussion about syria's future until cracks down on the iranian shipments. >> shannon: thank you very much. the head of the western-backed opposition in syria is supportedly stepping down, resigning out what have he calls frustration with a lack of international efforts to oust the leader assad. >> this resignation is really shows how fragmented the syrian opposition is and even if assad were to fall, the western allies don't know who to call and talk to. right now, the syrian opposition is in two camps. you have the free syrian army, the locals who have risen up against the regime. but on the other side, have you e
country. the government claims rebel groups use the weapons in an attempt that reportedly killed more than two dozen people. the rebels deny it. they claim it was, in fact, the regime that launched the attack. but after more than two years of each side leveling accusations of murder and torture and increasingly desperate employees for support for world powers. it's impossible to know who to believe. the regime claims the chemical attack happened outside of aleppo. syrian state media showed this video and reports it shows so. wounded. the people here do not bear any signs of any chemical warfare. no visible blisters or convulsions, discolored scand so forth. today the white house cast doubt on that government claim. the white house issued a stern warning nevertheless. >> the issue of the possibility of chemical weapons remains a great concern. you heard the president from this podium express his position when he said, quote: the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. and his warning to the syrian regime that, quote: there will be consequences and you will be held acc
're supplying the government force there is and hoping the arms treaty will stop or there will be a way to stop those transfers taking place. as we've seen with the u.k. and france speaking about the lifting of the u.n. arms embargo and whether to supply, it could open a can of worms in the negotiations. many states called for the a.t.t. to actually include a prohibition of arms unless authorized by governments. an oddity that wouldn't happen in the syrian case and could make things a lot more complicated in the next two weeks if that issue is brought up again. >> one of the big players is asia. it is a huge market for the arms trade and becoming increasingly militarized. how do disputes from north korea affect the trade? >> i think in the asian market, what we've seen is china and india, two major regional powers, has major importers there and south korea as well and singapore. what we're seeing are countries seeking to obviously boost their own national security forces but also the desire in those countries to develop their own arms industry. many of the items we're seeing being delivered we'
to cash machines in cyprus this weekend after word spread of the government's unprecedented plan to take money from personal bank accounts. >> it's disgusting. >> reporter: to beat the government to their savings, many waited on long lines before finding themselves empty handed when atms ran out of cash. >> i plan to go to the bank and withdrawal all the money i have in there. i can't trust them anymore. it's theft. >> reporter: to help pay for the $13 billion european bailout, the government plans to take up to 10% from all savings accounts. >> you can't just take out of people's savings, can you? >> let's keep our cash. get it on a bet or something. >> reporter: they say it's sign on and pay up or go belly up. >> we want something that lasts, something durable and that will be sustainable. >> reporter: ahead of tuesday's vote, the president of cyprus held a meeting as a way to soften the blow for residents. >> we fully support the decision of the president of cyprus and their efforts to bring financial stability to cyprus. >> reporter: still, residents say they're furious about paying
trillion in new taxes. the government would still be in a deficit after ten years. senator patty murray argues the plan creates jobs and economic growth but, of course, during the process, patience did run thin. >> madam president, madam president, madam president. >> senate will come to order. >> madam president, the senate is not in order. i flow's a lot of march madness going on. we would like to keep it calm on the floor so that senators can be heard. >> reporter: the white house recently passed -- excuse me, the house recently passed the ryan budget plan which includes a $4.6 trillion deficit reduction over the next decade. these budget plans are resolutions are not bills. this week, congress did pass a continuing resolution bill which actually funds the government for the next six months. we did hear from white house press secretary jay carney, responding to today's news in a statement and reading, in part, "like the president's plan, the senate budget cuts wasteful spending, makes tough choices to strengthen entitlements and eliminates special tax breaks and loopholes for the wea
on a local level it now falls to the federal government to set them up. >> no money was budgeted for the federal government to do that. congress seems unwilling to give the administration money to do that. we are looking at a very messy situation. >> reporter: but the president says these exchanges will give americans and small business owners the choice to pick a health insurance plan that fits their budget. harris? >> harris: molly, thank you. american voters have been asking for years why hasn't the u.s. senate passed a well, after a dizzying marathon of votes and grueling all nighter by lawmaker we have it. senators on capitol hill have produced a budget. the $3.7 trillion plan passed by just one vote. 50-49. they worked through you the night voting time and time again on a slew of amendments to finally get a budget deal done around 5:00 this morning. the senate plan includes nearly a trillion dollars in new taxes over the next decade. and $100 billion in stimulus spending. and would do little to cut spending or the deficit. four democrats mark pryor of arkansas, kay haigen o
bergoglio, and argentina and the various governments there. >> reporter: that's right. observers look at the situation in argentina with cristina kirchner as somebody who could check her power. he's somebody that's against gay marriage somebody that's against extra sepgscontraception, and that goes against cristina kirchner.r.ner.r. when pwhe p opan s wcis wci announced during a congressional meeting with kirchner, they actually paused and they stopped to remember president hugo chavez. they did not stop and remember pope francis. so that just goes to tell you and to speak and honor pope francis. now, obviously president kirchner did come yesterday and met for 20 minutes before having lunch. she said that she got a kiss from pope francis to sort of mend the situation that has happened, that's been going on in argentina for many many years between really the government of argentina and the church. bergoglio has always been somebody who has spoken out against really self-absorbed politicians who some say cristina kirchner is. also, during the meeting, they prese
living in a prison-like state governed at every step of their life by the east german government. >> tom did not have a prompter. tom did not have a script. he just had the entire history of the 20th century in his head. and it all came out that night. >> sometime after midnight at the berlin wall one of our computer technicians ed lee came running up wide-eyed and he handed me a big chunk of the berlin wall. and he said they were taking it down right before our eyes. so i keep a small kind of iconic piece of it on my desk constantly. i think it represents the shattering of the divisions between people and the collapse of the soviet union and communism as a political philosophy. you can build a wall, but the people will take it down. ♪ new day for the catholic church, and new questions about the church's influence on american politics. we have perspective this morning on the journey ahead for pope francis, from cardinal francis george, the archbishop of chicago. what message did the cardinals mean to send with the selection of the first ever pope from latin america? a special discussio
this will be perceived and that's something that our executives, and whether they're in the regular federal government or the postal service, has to take note of. that the public is watching and that they are turned off by seeing waste of taxpayer dollars or in this case, sosh service dollars. >> attendees see it another way. >> relationships and networking very important. if they just stand in their office in washington they wouldn't get the feel of what the mailers want and need in the industry because the industry's changing. technology is changing and the postal service is changing with it. >> reporter: again, the u.s. postal service spending more than 2 million dollars on exhibit space and travel expenses. that may not sound like a lot, but as one government watch dog group told me, the way you end up 16 billion dollars in debt you don't worry about a 2 million dollar expenditure. over time, harris, it all adds up. >> harris: indeed it does. thank you. and republican lawmakers stepping up calls to hear from the the survivors of the benghazi terror attacks, six months after that assault there are
